This terrific 20 Minute Microlight Experience takes gift giving to new heights! Microlighting is one of the most dramatic ways to take to the skies, although it’s flying like you have never experienced it before. Sitting in the cockpit allows you to enjoy panoramic views across the open countryside and the sensation of soaring above the ground is always exhilarating. There is simply nothing better than seeing the world slowly fall away beneath you. There are two main types of microlight, a flex wing which has an open cockpit and a fixed wing which has a closed cockpit and is more like a miniature plane and you can state which you would prefer to fly in at the time of booking.
Your day will include a thorough briefing from your instructor who will do their best to impart their love of flying to you. You will learn how to use the dual controls on the microlight and your instructor will show you the routine of pre-flight checks and demonstrate the safest way to get into the microlight itself. Then you will take off, climbing to 1500 feet where the instructor will show you how the controls work and, when you are happy with what everything does, you will take over and actually fly the microlight yourself.
Available on selected Monday to Sunday dates throughout the year. However April to September are the recommended flying months. You can enjoy this experience at the following locations:
Herefordshire - Leominster; Lincolnshire - Langworth; West Midlands - Stourbridge; East Riding - Hull; Lancashire - Lancaster; South Lanarkshire - Strathaven; Hampshire - Micheldever; Wiltshire - Marlborough
